This work depicts the Dhuwa Moiety Marna (shark) who inhabits this site named Wandangurr at the boundary of Datiwuy and Wangurri clan estates. The Rarrk represents salt water currents through which Marna swims.
This is where the Yirritja moiety ‘Gapu Gularri’ and Dhu Moiety ‘Gupu Murupu’ (salt water) mix to create Gapu Mornuk (a mix of salt and fresh; dirty and clean water). This represents the ceremonial relationship between Datiwuy (Dhuwa) and Wangurri (Yirritja) Clans. Yolngu call this relationship Yothu Yindi which binds them ceremonially.
